My husband and I went for a get away weekend and found this little gem in Sarasota on Lido beach. The hotel is small and clean even if a little outdated in decor... Our room was very spacious and the staff was so welcoming. The location is within a mile-ish of the famous St Armand's Circle which is full of... More

If you are looking for a modern, glitzy hotel, read no farther. This one is not for you. BUT, if you want a clean, comfortable little place right on the beach with a hospitable staff, check out Coquina on the Beach at Lido Beach near Sarasota, FL. Our stay there was wonderful. It is an old, family owned hotel built... More

We have stayed at this hotel now for almost 8 years straight once or twice a year. I love having a little kitchen and as far as location, it's spot on. I will say that this time we had some issues with housekeeping actually the past two times we have stayed there have been a lack of detail or they... More

I visited Coquina with my family and my dogs. We all enjoyed our stay! It was so relaxing and such a peaceful environment. It was exactly what we all needed. I have a very big dog and I never find a hotel that allows him to stay. Coquina was so welcoming and it felt like home. Everything was clean. The... More

This small motel, located on the Gulf of Mexico, is the best place for a vacation if you have kids or pets, or even if you do not. Beautiful pool, private beach, walking distance to St. Armand's Circle, a pleasant stroll to the nature sanctuary, professional and courteous staff, even the housekeeping staff is superb. Coquina is always updating the... More

We have been here many times and love it. The entire family comes down for the week. We always stay in beach view rooms, which are clean and well maintained. The staff is very friendly and deals with problems promptly. Steps from the beach. Pet friendly. On weekends tend to get a bit lively and noisy. Love this place!

Wonderful feeling like being back at my Island. Many palm trees everywhere, and shade! Some rooms are kept better than others. Pool or ocean view are better than garden view. Good for family vacations, but make sure you get groceries before checking in. No restaurants or convenience stores within walking distance.
